IN: Community Health Network patient test results missing

Jordan Fischer reports:

Hundreds of patients’ test results went missing last month from a Community Health Network office, the hospital network announced Friday.

In February, the staff at Physician Network Practice, located in the 2000 block of North Shadeland Avenue, noticed a binder with results had disappeared.

The binder contained more than 600 hemoglobin and lipid profile tests for services at the location between January and September of 2014. Staff immediately began looking for the binder, but as of Friday had not found them.

Community Health officials said the results were limited to name, date of service, test type and test results. No Social Security numbers or addresses were included in the binder.
